People are tuning in every Wednesday night to watch TLC’s new show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. This family bewilders the best of viewers, but people just can’t seem to stop talking about them. The family seems like an odd, yet loving, group that just embraces life and their crazy life. Some may think a bit differently, however, now that news has surfaced that “Mama” June Shannon has some legal issues in her past.
Starcasm shares the details and even has June’s mug shot from when she was arrested in 2008. She was charged in Henry County, Georgia with contempt of court and theft. Apparently there are also indications she was involved in “a couple of child support cases” around that time. June Shannon has noted in the show that she had two children by the time she was 17, but she hasn’t shared details on the show regarding exactly how the family is put together other than that.
Granted in the grand scheme of reality television scandals, this is minor. There doesn’t seem to be any other information hitting the web on June’s former legal issues, which would lead most to imagine that the charges were pretty minor overall. June did come under fire after the family’s first appearance on Toddlers & Tiaras when she gave “Honey Boo Boo” her “Go-Go Juice” consisting of Red Bull and Mountain Dew. As crazy as the family is, they tend to say they just don’t care what others think of them.
Have you been tuning into the show? Are you hoping it will continue beyond its initial 10-episode order?
